Passing variable from form to confirmation page

    I just need one bit of advice. When the user completes the one-page form, they're redirected to a confirmation page where I have an aweber opt-in form. I'm trying to get the email address to pass from the gravity form to the confirmation page and pre-populated in the opt-in email input area (name="email" value= "") so that the user simply clicks submit to opt-in.

    I've set the form to pass the data (email={Email:1}), but it's not pre-populating my form? The email address is showing up in the url when it redirects, but it shows up as websiteurl.com/confirmation?myemail%404gmail.com, instead of myemail@gmail.com. I'm not sure if this is typical or not. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

  2. Hi wecomm,

    Is the aweber opt-in form powered by Gravity Forms? If not, you'll Gravity Forms wouldn't auto-populate the field with the query variable but you could write a little code that pulls the query variable from the URL and adds it the field.

    In regards to the "%40", this is how the @ symbol is encoded for URLs. If you are populating this back into a field, it will automatically display as a @ in the field itself.
